Loews Chicago Hotel Chicago, Illinois | July 24-26
The premier private equity event
The Private Equity Exclusive event is the annual meet up for the North American private equity industry. Designed for both LPs and GPs – with a carefully managed ratio of both – it’s the event for networking, knowledge sharing, collaboration and relationship building.
The event is back in Chicago for its 17th year with an exciting programme and speaker line up. We’ll be looking at the opportunities and challenges in the current environment and discussing future trends. Topics include:
A new era for private credit
Opportunities around distressed assets
Balancing profitability with social responsibility
Our keynote speaker
Deputy Chief Investment Officer
Public Employees' Retirement Association of New Mexico
George C. Tiao Distinguished Service Professor of Economics
University of Chicago Booth School of Business
An event for LPs and GPs
Hear from experts, and meet leaders, from across the private equity spectrum.
LPs can meet new and existing managers and explore new private equity allocations, consultants can develop sector knowledge and network, and GPs can build relationships with investors and consultants, and of course win business.
We maintain a carefully controlled 2:1 ratio of investors/investor consultants to manager firms for the optimum environment.
And investors benefit from closed-door networking opportunities specifically for LPs.
Why sponsor Private Equity Exclusive?
Attendance at Pension Bridge is sought after. This is an event where GPs can make game-changing deals by developing existing relationships and creating new ones.
Our strict attendance structure and ratios are unique to the industry and create the optimal environment to foster connections – investors don’t feel overwhelmed, and you have the best visibility to forge relationships.
The ideal venue
The Loews Chicago Downtown Hotel is just steps from Navy Pier, and has spectacular city skyline and lake views. Ideally located near Magnificent Mile, it is close to the city's most popular attractions including Millennium Park and the John Hancock Center. Tried and tested for this event it’s the perfect venue for exploring and working.
The perfect summer spritz
Get a head start on your networking by joining us at the welcome cocktail reception on the evening of Monday, July 24. Grab a summer cocktail at the spritz station while catching up with colleagues and enjoying the spectacular city skyline and lake views from the Loews Chicago Garden Terrace.
Shaken not stirred
Cap off the first full day of the conference with great conversation over food and drinks during our Tuesday night cocktail reception. Relax to the sounds of live jazz, surrounded by the Chicago sky line, and be sure to stop by the martini station to try the iconic cocktail, your way.
Pizza and beer, Chicago style
Close out the conference and recap on the key takeaways over Chicago style pizza and beer. Lunch on the final day will feature a beer tasting menu by a local brewery paired with deep-dish pizzas and other regional cuisine.
